The National Book Development Board (NBDB), an attached agency of the Department of Education, is mandated to help in the development of the book publishing industry in the country.

Each year, the NBDB awards grants to authors working on new or unfinished books in various categories especially in the fields of science and technology and those where authorship is few and non-existent. The grants are awarded under Republic Act 9521, or “The National Book Development Trust Fund Act,” enacted to support Filipino authorship and to assist authors in completing their manuscripts, in the hope that more books of excellent quality will be written.
